Australian Women’s Film Festival to debut, and it’s by women, for women

After postponing in 2020, the inaugural AWFF is set to launch in 2021 spearheaded by artistic directors Tahyna Macmanus & Kelly Tomasich.

The first annual Australian Women’s Film Festival will premiere this year, after the new short film festival delayed its 2020 launch due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The event will take place on 14 March at Event Cinemas AACTA Bar and Cinemas at Bondi Junction in Sydney. The festival, co-directed by the director-producer duo who created feature documentary MuM: Misunderstandings Of Miscarriage, celebrates the talent and skill of women filmmakers, providing a platform for them to showcase their talent.
